I can help you achieve your sheepdog handling ambition
Julie has been a tenant farmer on the 239.5 Hectare (~600acre) Carcant Estate since November 2005. A natural and gifted teacher with a qualification in canine communication, Julie has been teaching both individuals and groups around the world how to use the “pressure/release” methods she developed to train and handle her own Border Collies.
Julie originally started her shepherding days in East Anglia and her passion for the working border collie started her on a path to understand the language of the dog. Her move to Scotland took Julie and her sheepdogs to some of the remotest, most rugged hill terrain in the UK where, as the sole shepherd, she single-handedly tended 1000 sheep grazing over 8000 acres. This experience showed her the critical importance of having exceptionally good working sheepdogs and the limits of endurance both the shepherd and dog have to achieve in order to cope with everyday shepherding tasks.
